New 'Incorporation' Format

   I just found about a new 'Low Profit Limited Liability Company' business incorporation that might be a great chance for zinsters. Go to Wikepedia (or any other search engine) and search for 'Low Profit Limited Liability Company' or 'L3C' . There are about 10 states/Indian Nations that are now allowing this format. If you form it in one of those states, you can operate in all 50 states.   The most important part is that you may(?) be able to create local community 'newspapers' (the definition…See More

Revenge Of Print!

2011 has been declared the Revenge of Print, because we're all tired of "the end of publishing as we know it" stories. Revenge of Print is a campaign to get as many people as possible to self-publish in 2011!

Thanks for your comment on my blog post, Denim and Black Cloth: Feminism and Female Expression. I always appreciate feedback, and I hope that your friend's women's collective goes well and strong.

I have a similar view of burqas when it comes to authoritarian governments that impose it upon their citizens; it should be up to the individual how they express their religious values. But that same reasoning is why I don't support total burqa banning in other countries because it restricts someone's personal freedom in how they want to show their religion - while I do agree that there are men out there that mandate that their wives wear it, I would rather that they wear it in public and actually be able to go out rather than having those same men keep them inside because they are no longer allowed to wear it and thus are considered shameful. It restricts access in both ways.
Thanks again for your thoughtful comment!
